Warm temperatures to stick around. Strong south wind increases the humidity. Threat for showers and thunderstorms to increase late Thursday through Friday. Severe risk still looks low.
Facebook Live Update Tuesday 830pm:
Tuesday was another windy and warm day around the Arklatex. Morning low clouds gave way to plenty of sunshine for much of the area. Daytime highs again soared into the low to middle 80s. Expect much of the same for the next few days. Rainfall chances will stay rather low for Wednesday and much of Thursday. By Thursday evening some models indicate that a few thunderstorms could move into the northwestern edge of the Arklatex. The Storm Prediction Center indicates that these areas will see a ‘slight’ risk for severe storms. I still feel that the severe weather risk will be higher to the north and west of our area.
Look for the rain threat to gradually shift to the southeast Thursday night and Friday. It still appears that rainfall amounts for the southeast 3/4 of the area should remain well below one inch. It also appears that any severe weather risk will be very low. An isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out, but outbreaks like we’ve experience earlier this spring looks unlikely. Look for the rain threat to shift to the south half of the area mainly in NW LA and E TX Friday night and Saturday. All of the area should see the return of lots of sunshine by Sunday. That sunshine will likely stick around through the first half of next week.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 80/58.
